At least he's consistent, in a consistently ruining Transformers kind of way!!! No consideration for the fans or original storylines really, but hey, as long as there's flash cars, even flasher car chase scenes, and massive explosions, that's what makes a great movie right? Storyline's irrelevant, right? Wrong Mr. Bay, DEAD wrong!! :( :(

The new Turtles film is him as well is it? Blast! I saw the trailer for it in the cinema last night and as reboot's go it looked promising, but now that you've said Bay's doing that one too, my hopes are dashed!! Ah well. I hope J.J. Abrahams does the new star wars some sort of justice at least. Cant do any worse than Lucas's attempt at episode 1 anyway! still see Jar Jar Binks in my nightmares, Shudder!!! :lol:

Yeah, sadly I do Ghost :| Damn Disney and their ever encroaching tentacles of greed! Marvel, star wars, they want to own all the big franchises. Bit ironic really, that the big company they portray in Wall.E, the one that eventually owns EVERYTHING on the planet and wrecks it, it is the very thing Disney is becoming :|

I actually think the TV series is better than the books. :)


I think you're on to something there, great stories and Steve Mangan is the business. But I love, love, love The Long Dark Tea-Time Of The Soul.

Love it.

I loved that one too Jen! I'll have to re-read it. It's been a long time.

Mrs Doubtfire. Many belly laughs, a few tears and shed-loads of love. RIP Robin.

Wasn't there supposed to be a sequel? Did they ever start filming? I'm going to have to dig out some old favourites too. What a loss.

I loved Robin in The Fisher King. He was in some real stinkers though - Popeye, Insomnia and Toys spring to mind.

The Fisher King is my favourite Robin Williams movie. It doesn't get mentioned much but it's a keeper.

I love the Fisher King story, I think you must have a heart of flint not to be moved by it.

Toys is pretty bad and strange but I really like Popeye (amazing music and direction!) and Insomnia.


Not seen The Fisher King yet, its on my Netflix list....
